$250 Buy-In H.O.R.S.E.
Level 18: 5,000/10,000 Limits
While Jack Deutsch and Faith Klimzack were having an animated discussion about the subtle nuances of Stud games, Anita Pearl was at the other end of the table waiting for a good spot to get her short stack in the middle.
The rotation switched over to Limit Hold’em and she raised it from under the gun before Deutsch let the room know he was calling. Nancy Cope called as well from the big blind before the flop came and Pearl threw her final 7,800 into the pot. Deutsch asked the dealer how much he could raise and Pearl said quietly, “He’s got a set of Jacks.”
Cope called the raise to see the turn and she called another bet. Cope let go of her hand when Deutsch fired on the river and said “Sorry to do this.”
Pearl was almost correct when she predicted his hand but it was a set of Nines with instead of Jacks. Her unimproved Big Slick was no match and she was sent out in 7th place for $684
